Message from the CTO

Pair Programming

Just over 10 years ago, Kent Beck wrote a slim volume called "Extreme Programming Explained" that discussed a new methodology for designing and developing applications.

Extreme Programming was one of the first attempts to impose an Agile methodology onto a development process and to avoid the so-called Waterfall method.

In the book, Beck laid out a dozen rules or practices that define Extreme Programming, covering all aspects of team development of software. One of them stood out in particular and seemed to generate more controversy than any of the others.

Pair programming.

No Room for Second Best ? Silverlight Controls Go for Gold

While the choice to focus development of the DevExpress Silverlight controls solely on Silverlight 4 was fraught with numerous thorny issues, the decision was ultimately based on a desire to provide Silverlight developers with a first class set of controls that would evolve and expand quickly, and necessitate a minimal number of breaking changes as we go forward.

Now that the Research and Development team have a clear Silverlight 4 focus and the solid foundation of the eXpress Presentation Framework to build upon, we can expect a sprint towards a DXperience suite for Silverlight developers. Already the layout and editing controls are heading for the winner’s podium with their latest set of improvements.

We’re keen to know what you think so give us your feedback and thoughts on the blogs and videos below.

* Silverlight Rich Text Edit Control ? New Features in v2010 vol 1

Getting to Grips with New WPF Features and Controls

As work continues on the new Microsoft development platforms, our suites of controls continue to expand to cater for bleeding edge developers. DXperience for WPF is seeing some significant improvements, especially with regard to the DXPivotGrid for WPF.

The DXPivotGrid for WPF has been fully-released with DXperience v2010 vol 1, and the team have been working to provide “How To” blog posts and videos on some of the product features to support this new release.

Enjoy Some Southern Style with Deep Fried Bytes

DevExpress have long been fans of Chris Woodruff and Keith Elder, the hosts of the technical podcast Deep Fried Bytes.

The great thing about Chris and Keith is that they are just like us ? developers in the field, getting on with it. They bring a real down-to-earth sense of reality to the content of their shows and the people that they interview. One of our favorite shows has been Staying Sane in Today’s Software Development World with Billy Hollis. Don’t tell us you’ve never wondered if it’s possible!

The shows are great, the hosts are great … and the current show supporters aren’t bad either! Add Deep Fried Bytes to your RSS feed and soak up their Southern style. Tell ‘em DevExpress sent you.
